I bought my iPhone 5 about two years ago. This model was being phased out. I had trouble with it so thanks to Apple Care I got it replaced a week after I bought it. Brand new iPhone, the second one. It had to be programmed all over again. The worst for me because it’s so time consuming. A big UGGGHHHH. I put in all my information. I put my thumb on the button to scan its ridges. I came up with passwords I would soon forget.
Fast forward to about two months ago. My camera was acting up. I could only take selfies. No thanks. I went to the Apple store and got a new camera thanks to Apple Care. My insurance was nearing the end so it was perfect timing. Nothing else will happen. WRONG. My camera was doing the same thing as before with crazy colors appearing and disappearing. It was not completely silent when I put it on silent during work hours. It was taking pictures when my camera wasn’t even on. Things that make you go HMMMMMM.
The Apple store is close to where I live, and it’s a good thing because there was street cleaning today so I didn’t want to take my car. It takes way too long to back up your information on iCloud in any store. I made the trek back home and it downloaded within a decent time. I needed more space so I bought some more space. Next time I’ll bring a book although I don’t want there to be a next time for a long time.
Advance to three hours later today. I had my new iPhone in my hand, still the same model, as I walked back to the apartment. The things I learned from the technician would have been quite a lot had I really listened to her explain how information is transmitted from the iCloud to wherever it needs to go. I did hang onto the part when she asked if I had a lot of texts. I told her I have a few, which was a lie. I only had one.
The fact I don’t save texts cut down my time by about 20 minutes and also the fact I have hardly any emails in my accounts or my delete box saved time too. Unless you absolutely need all your texts and emails, get rid of them. This is my advice to everyone with iPhones. If you like waiting around when something goes bust, then by all means, don’t get rid of anything. Cheers everyone!!! Happy Friday!!!

This project started when my roommate did not want to use my “special quarters.” Those educated in the United States had to learn the 50 states and their capitals as students in grade school. Oh, what we did to memorize the spelling of Mississippi and Pennsylvania or maybe that was just me. I asked my roommate to quiz me on the capitals not too long ago. I got most of them right.
This need to see how many quarters in my rolls I had stashed away made me completely forgo my original plans a few weeks ago on a Sunday to compile a list of what kind of “special quarters” I actually had. It made me realize the U.S. Treasury (for sure dollar bills) or whoever is responsible for creating new coins had been busy again with their quarters. I was aware they released the state quarters that were put into production from 1999 to 2008. Remember all the hot rage? Coin collectors probably didn’t sleep that night.
What I didn’t know is America the Beautiful quarters currently in production are pretty cool looking quarters. They will be completed in 2021. They started to be released in 2010, so yes, not very observant on this front. Better late than never. I added to my collection when I traded a 20 dollar bill for two rolls of quarters today. I’m missing ten from the state quarters, but hope to have it completed by the end of this year. I had to go one step further and mark how many of duplicates I had of each state. While I haven’t visited every state, maybe one day I will, and so far I’ve only visited or lived in fifteen states and passed through a handful of states, but I don’t really count them. Call me crazy, but this was kinda fun. No wait, it was REALLY FUN!
